The 2017 1er Cru Vaillon exhibits notes of lemon oil, green apples, bread dough and nutmeg. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, glossy and bright, with good cut and a tangy, saline finish. It's an attractive cuvée that's produced from six parcels.
Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: 91-93/100. The 2017 Chablis Vaillons 1er Cru is 40% fermented in barrel that was blended with tank wine two weeks previously. The bouquet is a little muted at the moment, possibly from the recent blending however, the palate is very promising with a killer line of acidity that lends so much tension, almost to the point of shrillness (but avoiding that – the pH is 3.19 for those interested). This just revives the senses and there is wonderful salinity on the aftertaste. Superb !
